The Irish bowline is a knot created from two knots, the cow hitch and the overhand knot. They are formed into one new knot when they are capsized (step #4).

The Irish bowline is secure when tied with synthetic ropes, unlike the bowline.

The knot is easy to untie: pull both ends apart to create slack inside of the knkot. Then grab the knot on opposite sides and pull.
